Principal Software Engineer


Fully Remote

Salary range – US$66,000 – US$96,000 per year

Do you know that “Shipping code is just like sending a large payment”. You would love this job when you see how making payments is just like doing a PR.

Like an engineering team is driven by tickets, finance teams are driven by bills and invoices. New code and new payments need to be double-checked for validity.

The insight that payments are a lot like pull requests is a core part of Routable’s DNA to this day — it influences everything we do. It influences not just our product development and design process, but also our hiring process. It’s how we get the best engineers in the world to work on modernizing business payments with us.

We are a fully remote, US-based Fintech startup, with funding of $16 million helping companies to speed up their business payments using a secure invoice and bill payment platform that automates accounts payable and receivable processes. It is designed to involve finance, engineering, operations, support, marketing, and sales teams within the same platform. Routable’s software integrates with accounting software such as Xero, Quickbooks, and NetSuite.

We are all “company owners” and act accordingly. We jump at the opportunity to be accountable and take action whenever we see a problem. Our environment encourages intellectual curiosity, problem-solving, and openness—one that provides the support and mentorship needed to succeed, learn and grow.

We are looking for a principal full-stack engineer who is more backend focused to act as a technical leader within the engineering organization.
